Author Bio:  J.C. Isabella is the author of The Unofficial Zack Warren Fan Club and a romance novel junkie. Ever since she discovered the genera in high school, she has been a self-proclaimed fan. This led to penning her first YA romance. When she isn't thinking up new recipes for the cookbook she hopes to one day write, she is brainstorming a new novel and listening to country music. She lives in the tropics of Florida, with her big fat Italian family, and ornery feline companion.  Website

Synopsis:Briar Thompson had it all. The right clothes, the right friends, the right car. Being popular was all that mattered. Her parents were rich and treated like royalty throughout the community. She thought her senior year of high school was going perfectly, until the night her drink was spiked at a party by one of her so called friends.

That was the night she met Chase McCree.

Chase wanted to go back to Montana. To the ranch and the wild, wide blue sky that went on forever. He wanted nothing to do with flashy cars or spoiled rich kids. But he found himself head over boots for the quirky cheerleader who turned her back on her social status. She befriended him when no one else would.
Shunned and hurt by the people who were once her friends, Briar flees with Chase to his family ranch in Montana. There she discovers another world, and apart of herself she never knew.The cowboy wasn’t like anyone she’d ever met. The cheerleader wasn’t like anyone he’d ever met. Apart their lives didn’t seem to make sense, but together, they were chasing forever.

Review: I wanted to take part in this tour because I had heard some buzz on a Livejournal community about this book and I wanted to see what it was all about. It has a super cute plot. Cowboy and a rich girl cheerleader. Sure it sounds like something that has been done before, but the story is such a fun read, that it doesn't matter, especially with the cast of characters that she creates.

You love Briar from the minute that she meets Chase, drunk and thinking she has 4 legs! And then there's her grandma! OMG! Briar's gram joins the ranks of cool old ladies, like Grandma Mazur!

This book reminded me of the YA books I read when I was in high school. Not that there's anything old fashioned, but because it was a sweet love story, complete with all the proper twists and turns necessary to keep you turning the pages. This is definitely a YA I can recommend! Plus no vampires, witches etc...which I really think are getting old. Its nice to see a normal contemporary romance for the YA crowd, and J.C. Isabella delivers that nicely!
